Summary: I've been salivating since October for this particular game. To say that I was disappointed is an understatement. There is only one word for this game, WEAK. There are so many flaws in this game that I can't possibly list them all.
Summary: I was very disappointed with Live 2001. I was looking forward to it for months and it turned out to be a waste of money. The graphics are not that great. The gameplay is very slow and there are a lot of pauses or lag during the game. You cant pull up and shoot a jump shot.
Summary: One of the most anticiptated sports games for the Playstation 2 turns out to be one of the 1st bombs for the system! I've been an EA sports- NBA Live fan for over 8 years now. Playing it on all the major systems; like, Playstation, PC's, Genesis, Super NIN, etc.. So I'm a devoted NBA Live fan.
Summary: As a long time fan of the NBA Live series, I can honestly say that I purchased the PS2 almost only to play this game. NBA Live 2000 was so good, with the challenges and the unlocking hall of fame players, that I expected this game to blow my mind. Unfortunately, it only blew a hole in my wallet.
Summary: As a loyal fan of EA Sports products I said I would give this game a chance even though I had read all the bad reviews it had received. I was expecting Madden 2001 game play when I bought the game, but what I got was Nintendo Double Dribble! . They (EA Sports) really jerked us with this game.
Summary: You can barely even make a jumper above rookie level. This game is so bad and frustrating I can't get over it. The game play is slow, the other team waits until there is one second on the shot clock to shoot, and every time you play unless you jam every time your shooting percentage will be about...
Summary: This is a shame. I love the PS NBA Live series, but this is a far cry from it. Listen to the people here bashing the game. Rent it and you'll know. The graphics (for a PS2 game) are awful, even compared with Live 2K1 on PS. The gameplay is more like Shootout.
Summary: EA Sports really had a chance to knock our socks off with NBA Live 2001, but they gave us a real stinker. First off, the control is pretty bad, as you never feel that you have control of the players. The graphics are really pathetic, as the courts look really aliased and *cough* PSone like.
Summary: First of all I would like to say I played every single NBA Live Product ever made. and I think NBA LIVE products were far better than any other wannabe basketball game. Having said that, NBA LIVE 2001 was grossly hype-up and came about as a pure disappointment.
Summary: I have a Dreamcast and a Playstation 2 and except for maybe 2 or 3 titles I think the Dreamcast is winning in the gaming department. I bought NBA live and was very upset with everthing but the graphics.
